I realized I was really missing my kaleidoscopes.
Since switching to the new computer with Vista, the Kaleidoscope Kreator program doesn't work on it at all, and I'm too cheap to buy the new version which supposedly will. Well, not too cheap, just not wanting to spend the money on that particular unnecessary and frivolous item. After all it is still on a working computer, which is hooked up to the backup drive where all my photos live. I just have a few more steps involved to play with it.
So, it is nice when I do remember to go play with that particular tool. I really like this one, based on a photo of my quilt As Above, So Below
